, both parties agreed to -- at that point to transition over to a sales tax based methodology. and one of the issues there was that the sales tax methodology was easier to do because we could not count ridership. we didn't have any way of tracking that ridership electronically. and, so, so, over time that number has fluctuated based upon sales tax revenues and how the sales tax revenues have fluctuated. so, for example, in fiscal year 2009 to 2011, the payment under this current form would be increased by 18% because of the fact that the economy had affected sale tax received that weren't received. we recognize the $15 million versus the contract value of approximately $2.6 million is quite a substantial difference. during negotiations we discussed this issue and we were very pragmatic about this. we did not feel that it would be feasible to transition to an amount like $15 million overnight. so, that's the feeder agreement. in term of -- those are the historical developments of both agreements. and now i'd like to walk you through the proposed amendments to the agreement. so, for the

tax dollars to complement and support of the city funded infrastructure investment coming from voter approved initiatives such as the street bond that we all i think worked on. working in tandem with mta to deliver pedestrian safety, traffic calming and other improvements faster and more efficiently and very fair and process to select our executive director. i believe that commissioner avalos will be able to handily take the wheel and help us usher and addresses key issues that i've outlined today. thank you. >> thank you commissioner, before i turn to commissioner wiener, i want to ask if there is any other member of the public who like to say something else on this item? public comment on this is closed. commissioner wiener. >>i'm happy to support commissioner avalos as chair. sometimes something to get lost in the debates is that even though we have areas of disagreement but often get a lot of attention, a lot of press coverage because anytime you have a big dispute at city hall that is likely to get the attention, in reality when it comes to transportation policy in the city

measures such as the sales tax and vehicle registration fee that are administered by the authority. one of the things that is important as we move forward is to always look for the most cost-effective ways of doing the work. one of the things that i hope you continue to do is to focus on enhancing coordination among the various city agencies. we saw with a number of projects that were discussed at the authority that while there is communication between these agencies better communication is needed. and one of the things that i hope happens- especially with the major projects - that we continue to focus on how the county transportation authority interacts with the mta and other agencies involved in various projects that we are funding. i know that in the state of the city address, mayor lee indicated that public transportation % specifically the mta is going to be a top priority for him. i know he is putting together a working group that is going to be looking at those issues and i hope that at that work continues the county transportation authority is an important part of that discussi

it was unheard of by many of the tech companies, the same with tax exclusion that we also did on stock compensation was that tech companies were committed on working with the city of san francisco on hiring residents from many neighborhoods that don't have access to the growing technology sector whether it is the mission, tenderloin, south of market and western addition; and happy to have cosponsors breed, cohen, avalos - to see what it is that we can do to partner with our private tech sector to ensure that we are opening up and creating a pipeline of jobs whether it is for our students born and raised in san francisco who might not get the type of education to be competitive for these jobs; whether it is adults that i found themselves unemployed in an economy not doing well but need additional training for these jobs. what is it that we can do to partner with the mayor's office in our tech companies to develop programs that would address three different population needs so they can benefit from this growing sector? we have had a remarkable growth in the technology sector. i am pr
